Try An Adjustable Bed, You Might Not Go Back

People Have Been Manually Adjusting Their Beds For Ages

It just might be one of the best relationship savers ever, or for the happily single, the best solo-sleeping experience ever: an adjustable bed frame that raises, lifts and, for those who share a bed but have individual comfort needs, separates. “People have actually been adjusting their beds for ages,” said Jay Thompson, president of Leggett & Platt Adjustable Bed Group, a provider of adjustable bases to Mattress Firm. “But they used pillows and blankets.”

Adjustable Base Beds Have Been Around For Over 30 Years

Enter the adjustable bed base, activated by a remote control to elevate feet, and/or lift heads and backs. Some adjustable beds even have a massage feature. Adjustable beds have been around for more than 30 years, Thompson said, although advertising campaigns used to be directed toward the elderly. Back then, adjustable beds were also “very hospital looking” Thompson said.

Adjustable Bed — New & Updated For Modern Life

There are now several aesthetically-pleasing options when it comes to design and finishes — wood, metal, brushed, glossy, metallic, synthetic leather and such. Thompson said some models even look like furniture. “Most people don’t go out specifically shopping for an adjustable bed base,” Thompson said. “They shop for mattresses and are introduced to adjustable beds in the store.” Looks aside, some people tuck into adjustable beds because it’s what they’re used to.

The Best Adjustable Beds Are Made For Modern Activities

“They say ‘I can adjust my car seat, my office seat, my recliner… and now I’m going to adjust my bed’,” Thompson said. There are a lot of people who say beds should be for sleeping only, but according to Thompson, that’s not necessarily realistic in today’s world. Studies show that most of us use our bedrooms for a lot more than sleeping, but flat beds aren’t designed to accommodate additional activities comfortably. In fact, according to the National Sleep Foundation, an estimated 61 percent of Americans under the age of 45 curl up with their laptops or tablets in bed.

Adjustable Beds Can Maximize Your Comfort For A Good Night’s Sleep

For those who don’t, there are still several advantages to adjustable beds. Maybe you start out propped up in bed to read or watch TV, then you hit the switch to raise your tired feet and legs, and then you lay everything flat when it’s time to go to sleep. Whether you like a twin, full, queen or king size adjustable bed, “It’s personal preference,” Thompson said. “You can customize your comfort.”

    • I’m in a similar position as you, regarding my health. I have chronic pain in my back and neck as well as my joints. I also deal with degenerative disc disease and cluster migraines. My hubby and I purchased a king size Craftmatic Adjustable Bed about 12 years ago and it was worth every penny. Not only can I adjust it to support whatever I’m dealing with at the moment, it cured my husband’s snoring!
